Bill Sanderson works almost exclusively with scratchboard
, with which he produces both black and white and full colour artwork. He has done drawings for many newspapers, journals, book publishers, designers and advertising agencies in Britain and also in Europe and the USA.
He was one of the team of artists and illustrators who contributed a stamp design (shipbuilding) to the Royal Mail Millennium celebration, and in 2005 he shared first prize in the V&A annual illustration Awards with the designer Steve Snider, for Book Cover and Jacket illustration.
In the last few years he has illustrated three bestselling books of poetry by the renowned poet and publisher Felix Dennis, and he recently contributed three covers to a dozen re-issued classic books by Puffin
. He is rather proud that he is still regularly commissioned by the Radio Times, who were one of the original magazines to use his work over thirty years ago!
